Employment at TPI

The Psychotherapy Institute is hiring! We thank you for your interest. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace.

Clinical Director

A leading nonprofit mental health organization based in Berkeley, The Psychotherapy Institute (TPI) is committed to making depth psychotherapy accessible by training new and established psychotherapists in the latest socially responsible developments in our field. TPI offers a career with extensive opportunities for growth and leadership, along with the chance to make a meaningful impact on the field of psychodynamic therapy. This position will shape both the Post Graduate Training Program (PGTP) and the Community Clinic with opportunities to assume greater leadership responsibilities over time.

Who We're Looking For: We are seeking an experienced clinician who will manage our Post Graduate Training Program (PGTP) and Community Clinic part-time (approximately 0.50 FTE, or 20 hours/week). Our ideal candidate will continue to be actively engaged in private practice, allowing their clinical work to inform their work with students in our program and vice-versa. We seek candidates skilled in psychodynamic psychotherapy and committed to growth in sociocultural awareness. Candidates must be able to collaborate with a range of people, including psychotherapy professionals, training therapists, clients, board members, and TPI administrative staff. Clinical Directors who thrive at TPI are self-driven, empathetic, and comfortable working in a nonprofit educational setting. We seek to have a staff that reflects the populations we serve and encourage people of color, members of the LGTBTQ+ community, and applicants with multiple intersectional identities to apply.

Position Overview: The Clinical Director's main job is supporting 16-18 staff therapists through TPI's two-year training program, from recruiting and overseeing their training experience to their clinical work in TPI's moderate-fee Community Clinic. The Clinical Director oversees the day-to-day operations of the PGTP, providing both administrative and clinical oversight while ensuring that all policies and procedures are consistent with the principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy and maintaining an inclusive working environment. This position reports to, and works in collaboration with, the Executive Director.
